My Top 1000 Songs #82: Surrender

I'd like to think a lot of my favorites dominating the upper reaches of this list are deeply meaningful--lyrically moving, musically innovative, personally significant.

But sometimes they're just silly pop songs with perfect shout-along choruses that made me absolutely giddy as a 12-year-old (with no understanding of the absurdist lyrics), and still make me absolutely giddy well into middle age.

Mommy's alright, daddy's alright. They just seem a little weird. Indeed.
